Eat and Run

I haven't been posting much lately and I haven't been cooking much lately. I have been busy.

I have to tell you about one of my new staple lifesaving got-no-time-to-cook foods, Ajvar. Or, to be more specific, mild Ajvar, since the spicy version is a little much for me.

This middle eastern or Turkish dip has a smooth consistency and a flavor I don't get tired of. It is primarily red ripe sweet peppers, eggplant and tomatoes blended with some spices, including a few hot red peppers.

Thus, it is an almost miraculous 15 calories a tablespoon.

I eat it on crackers, on torn-up pitas, on bread, on quesadillas. The brand shown isn't the brand I buy, Zer Gut, but I couldn't find a photo and I was too lazy to get out the camera.

Oh man, I love this stuff! I go through a jar every two weeks. I put it on everything. Best lazy food ever.

It looks so fluorescent red-orange that I think it can't be real...but it is soo good.
